The 13-th Belarusian Antarctic expedition started the day before. 10 people are going to the ice continent this year. Five of them have already been there, another five are first timers. The crew has a hard work ahead of them – to continue construction of the Belarusian Antarctic station "Gora Vechernyaya", as well as scientific research within the framework of the state program for Antarctic study. From December till mid February, scientific research and deployment of the ambulatory and surgery module will be carried out. The return is planned for the first half of March.
